Dodge Stratus ProblemsRecall to inspect front, lower ball joints
A gear whine or whistling type noise heard when accelerating or coasting between approximately 65mph and 85mph may actually be caused by an improperly seated steering column boot. The steering column boot seals the steering shaft as it passes through the firewall.
When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.

Dodge Stratus RecallsPassenger Sun Visor May Detach In Collision
The passenger side sun visor may detach if an accident occurs with it in the down position, and the passenger front air bag is deployed, striking it. Dealers will install a tether strap to retain the visor free of charge to resolve the concern.
The right steering knuckle may have been damaged during the manufacturing process. This could cause the steering knuckle to crack and separate from the upper control arm, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the right steering knuckle. This recall is expected to begin on December 27, 2004. Chrysler recall number is D55.
